    Can't seem to find any info on Gorhill's Github repo about whether the updated UBlock is WebEx or XUL - The latter would be required for Firefox 52 & MyPal.

    UBlock Origin is the best ad-blocker bar none. I have done head-to-head comparisons with other extensions in both Mozilla and Chrome (Adblock Plus etc.) and none are as effective as UBlock. It completely removes ads from Youtube vids, ESPN vids and other sites I've tested it with. You can ad your own custom filters which has helped me evade ad-block detectors. Now you see "Please disable your adblocker to continue". Now you don't. One of my favorite features is the ability to import/export your settings and filters lists to a text file. That makes setting up UBlock on a new computer a breeze! Maybe not as user-friendly as other ad blocking extensions but clearly the most powerful.

    As I stated in a previous thread, I refuse to surf the web without this extension.

    • Enter about: config in your address bar and hit enter.
    • You might come across a security warning saying This might void your warranty!
    • Ignore it, just tap I'll be careful, I promise!
    • On the next page, you can notice all the settings to customize Firefox.
    • Now enter xpinstall.signatures.required (enter the exact text as it's case sensitive) in the search bar. It will automatically search for the particular setting.
      • Notice the Value tab; it should be True by default.
      • Double click on the setting to set it False. That's it.

    Thanks, I had already done that, but it had reverted to 'True'. Anyway I switched it back again, and uBlock installed. Probably will not matter, as Firefox crashes all the time, so I rarely use it.
